Increasing Number of Diseases in Humans Influences Need for Medical Mattress, Beds

Sleep, other than a vital element in human functions, is a mechanism par worth replenishing energies. For people suffering from some diseases, sleep and rest are important for recovery. Medical mattresses help provide the best possible conditions for the correct rest of a patient. Moreover, a hospitalized patient spends most of his time on the bed, thus, a mattress must have certain features that allow people to stay on it for long periods without deteriorating their well-being beyond their current condition.

Professionals and medical experts also suggest that one of the essential factors for proper rest and restroom patients is the mattress. Disorders such as pressure ulcers occur due to a sequence of factors. Continued external pressure on tissues causes a lack of blood flow to the concerned area. Studies also prove that a large-scale switch-out of hospital mattresses led to a decline in hospital-acquired pressure sores. This resulted in a 66.6% reduction in stage 3 and 4 pressure ulcers, and a 50% decrease in mattress comfort complaints. Such factors and figures are likely to fuel the medical mattress market during the forecast period.

The most preferred medical mattress for a hospital bed is mostly made of water-resistant material, which has a vapor-permeable surface. The pressure points keep on switching as the patient moves on the mattress. It aids in increased circulation, and makes the patient feel fresh with changing pressure points. Furthermore, the medical mattress is incorporated with a low-air loss technology where the small holes on the mattress let a small amount of air leak and keep the surface cool for sleeping.

In addition, major problems such as dementia in some people are one of the significant causes of disability, and dependence among older people around the world is critically increasing in the number of cases. Thus, catering to healthcare needs is not easy and hence, investments in the healthcare sector by various economies around the world are seeing an upward trend. This is likely to fuel the demand for the medical mattress market during the forecast period.

Medical Mattress: High in Demand, Low in Production & Supply

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to influence the growth of various industries. The critical impact of the crisis is varied, as few industries will register a decrease in demand, while several others will continue to remain unharmed and offer promising growth opportunities. The global outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has caused concerns among public and health administrations. The principal problem that many nations are facing during the crisis is a shortage of medical resources. However, there may be an expanded demand for hospital beds, stretchers, and mattresses to extend healthcare capacity in local hospitals, and healthcare systems through short expansion sites. Producers from a variety of industries that are not usually associated with medical device manufacturing are looking for resources to manufacture and market the medical mattress to fulfill the ongoing needs. The global medical mattress market is witnessing an increased demand amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, which is likely to increase post-COVID-19 pandemic.

At the time when most investments are being witnessed by the healthcare sector, people are demanding innovative comforting products such as orthopedic mattress, dual mattress, etc. In addition, the present consumers are comfortable making big purchases over the Internet, which has generated an opportunity for online businesses to transform the mattress buying experience. The regulations to shut down the market places and offline sales have boosted the online product markets. By taking the market online, companies have been able to offer commodities at 40-50 percent cheaper rates than market occupants. However, constant changes in laws, healthcare policy, and guidelines can impact the size and growth potential of the medical mattress market. Limited availability and elevated cost of material might hinder the buying, and very often mattresses in hospitals are used beyond their replacement cycle.

Supply chain cycle and increase in trade barriers are some of the major restraints leading to insufficient supply of raw materials. Many producers are running out of raw materials to fulfill the consumer demand, which will most likely hamper their client base. Nevertheless, the pandemic seems to come to an end with the rapid production of vaccines and increased vaccination drives in several countries. This will help the manufacturers to intensify production and overcome the restraints, thus driving the medical mattress market.

Manufacturers Focus on Affordable Medical Mattress for Developing Economies

Patients with a broad range of medical problems, including spinal cord injuries causing paraplegia or quadriplegia, respiratory infections such as pneumonia, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder can benefit from the appropriate medical mattress designed to assist in alleviating the symptoms and improving their experience. The healthcare facilities in developing economies mostly prefer gatch beds in hospitals, rural medical outposts, and geographic locations that typically experience economic hardships. The graded mattresses on these beds are mostly chosen for their durability, reliability, cost-effectiveness, and ability to be easily positioned.

Moreover, most basic hospital beds come with innerspring mattresses. This is usually the affordable option and is commonly found in most hospitals. Innerspring mattresses are suitable for patients with insignificant time in bed. Moreover, a combination of innerspring and foam can be a great option if the individual can roll over or sit up on their own, even if they spend significant time in bed. Furthermore, foam mattresses offer multiple layers of differing densities, all designed to support each part of the patient separately. A firm base layer provides overall comfort, while the other layers work together to ease pressure on joints. The easy availability of several types of medical mattress depending on the patient type and cost is driving the medical mattress market, which is estimated to exceed value of US$ 21 Bn by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of ~4% during the forecast period.
